Evacuation Protocols

WHEN THE ALARM SOUNDS:

    1. Gather personal belongings (as time permits) and MOVE QUICKLY TO THE NEAREST EVACUATION ASSEMBLY POINT, even if it is not your designated gathering point. Assembly points are clearly marked by red signs (see the triangles on the campus maps). Keep traffic lanes clear for emergency providers.
    2. Report trapped persons to any Building Emergency Coordinator, Public Safety Officer, or emergency responder.
    3. Instructors: please keep students together; do a head count and roll call and report missing students to any Building Emergency Coordinator, Public Safety Officer, or emergency responder.
    4. Do not use elevators in the event of a fire, earthquake, or chemical incident.
    5. Turn off computers, coffee pots, Bunsen burners, and gas shut-offs IF TIME and safety allow; quickly take your purse, keys, and coat.
    6. ASSIST THOSE WHO ARE DISABLED:
      At Main Campus, assist or direct those who cannot negotiate the stairs to an evacuation device (EVACU-TRAC) located at either:
  • the Forum Building staircase above the fountain between College Center Building and Business Building, or
  • the top of the stairs between Red Cedar Hall and Madrone Hall.
        At the Benton Center, assist or direct those who connot negotiate the stairs to an evacuation device (EVACU-TRAC) located at either:
  • the top of the east stairs in the new (north section of the building)
  • the top of the east stairs in the old (south section of the building)
        At the Lebanon Center, assist or direct those who connot negotiate the stairs to an evacuation device (EVACU- TRAC) located at:
  • the top of the lobby stairs

The Building Manager and Building Emergency Coordinator are responsible for each floor of the building. They will assist the evacuation process, provide instruction and direction, ensure that everyone has left the affected floor and relocated to the assembly point, closed all doors, etc. Building Emergency Coordinators will report assembly point status during evacuation roll call. Evacuation routes and associated assembly points are indicated on facility maps inside the entrance doors on each building floor.

Facilities and other employees, such as those who are designated to shut down critical operations, maintenance, Public Safety, computer services, food services staff, and managers may be required to remain behind during an evacuation IF IT IS SAFE FOR THEM TO DO SO to care for critical college operations and assist the Incident Command Staff until evacuation becomes absolutely necessary. They may monitor or shut down electrical, HVAC, water, natural gas, computer network, kitchen facilities, and/or any other essential services that must be shut down in stages as directed by LBCC's Incident Command Staff.

BENTON CENTER will evacuate to the SOUTH SIDE PARK AREA or the NORTHEAST PARKING AREA. Evacuation for anyone needing assistance is located on the second floor as indicated above.

LEBANON and SWEET HOME CENTER will each evacuate to the parking lots in their respective designated areas.
REMAIN ON LBCC GROUNDS, and do not re-enter the buildings until the ALL CLEAR signal is given.

MASS EVACUATION OF CAMPUSES
In the event of a regional emergency, LBCC will use the mass evacuation plan as a guide in determining appropriate routes for evacuation from the impacted campus.
